When we live with mindfulness, we […]

Faculty Film Club

The Faculty seemed like the perfect excuse to start a film club, something we’ve been thinking about since we started, and after a pub conversation with local film maker Phil Harrison here we are. The Faculty Film Club will show movies that will stir the recesses of your brain and have you chatting over the movie long after the credits […]

Real Sketchy

Since November 2012 Seedhead Arts has been running and developing Real Sketchy, a open live sketching event taking place in a bar environment.

Ten Thousand to One – Pointless 21st November 2014

‘Endlessly Dumbing Down’ 5th September 2014

On Arts Extra last night  about 15 min in someone called Fionuala Meridith, when talking about Belfast Festival at Queens, said this… ‘We’re talking about so called high arts, high culture… the tendency locally and politically is to place the emphasis on social inclusion, accessibility, relevance, mass appeal – that’s all fine but I do think they’re right to try […]
